How To Make Hearty Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

Braised short ribs is a classic comfort food that’s sure to please everyone. Use hearty red wine in this recipe for to get the fullest of flavors.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 3 hours 15 minutes
Total: 3 hours 35 minutes



  • 6bone in short ribs
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1largespanish onion
  • 2ribscelery
  • 2carrots
  • 2clovegarlic
  • cuptomato paste
  • 2cuphearty red wine
  • 2cupwater
  • 1bunchfresh thyme
  • 2bayleaves
  • salt


  1. Season each short rib generously with salt. Using a pan large enough to accommodate all the meat and vegetables, coat with olive oil and bring to a high heat.

  2. Add the short ribs to the pan and brown very well. This will be about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Do not overcrowd pan. Cook in batches, if necessary.

  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  4. While the short ribs are browning, puree all the vegetables and garlic in the food processor until it forms a coarse paste. When the short ribs are very brown on all sides, remove them from the pan.

  5. Drain the fat, coat the bottom of same pan with fresh oil, and add the pureed vegetables.

  6. Season the vegetables generously with salt and brown until they are very dark and a crust has formed on the bottom of the pan, which will take approximately 5 to 7 minutes.

  7. Scrape the crust and let it reform. Scrape the crust again and add the tomato paste. Brown the tomato paste for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the wine and scrape the bottom of the pan.

  8. Lower the heat if things start to burn, then reduce the mixture by half. Return the short ribs to the pan and add 2 cups water or until the water has just about covered the meat.

  9. Add the thyme bundle and bay leaves. Cover the pan and place in the oven for 3 hours. Check periodically during the cooking process and add more water, if needed.

  10. Turn the ribs over halfway through the cooking time. Remove the lid during the last 20 minutes of cooking to let things get nice and brown and to let the sauce reduce.

  11. When done, the meat should be very tender but not falling apart. Serve with the braising liquid.
